In order to restore the body to a healthy state we must obey natural law. You can take all the supplements in the world but you will have a hard time achieving your health goals without following these recommendations. By following the basic guidelines we are able to support all of our systems and achieve wellness. Each week try to incorporate one new treatment guideline.
Sunshine: Be outside 30 minutes per day. In our busy schedules we tend to forget to take time to be in the rhythm of nature. Don’t forget that your skin produces Vitamin D when exposed to just 15 minutes of sunlight when your shadow is smaller than you.
Water: Drink half your body weight in ounces of clean water per day. If it is RO what you might want to consider adding electrolyte drops. When you are 3% dehydrated you feel thirsty. When you are 1% dehydrated your brain function is already decreasing.
Air: Taking 100 deep breaths per day will help to increase oxygen, decrease toxic CO2 and reduce stress! Try deep breathing while driving. It will help you remember breath and you may become a more relaxed driver.
Diet: Proper nutrition is essential for proper functioning of all your organ systems. Eat nutrient dense food. Make it convenient by cooking multiple things on one day and packaging them for the week. Take time to enjoy and chew your food. Take smaller portions. Try not to eat after 8pm. Avoid processed food and GMO’s.
Movement: Depending on your fitness level and health your exercise regimen will differ. Most can benefit from walking 30 minutes per day. You can also try biking, yoga, Qi Gong or Tai Chi. There are plenty of free classes on www.youtube.com. If you have a job where you sit, try to get up and walk around every 30 minutes.
Rest: Good sleep hygiene could be argued to be one of the most important aspects of health. When we sleep our body actively heals. Proper sleep hygiene includes going to bed by 11pm, sleeping in total darkness and no WIFI or cell phones in the bedroom.
Fun: Stress is the real silent killer. Doing something fun every day helps us to let go of stress. Be creative and take time for you!
Reflection: Taking time daily to reflect, meditate or pray is not only good for the soul but good for the body and mind. It helps us to decrease stress and reduce cardiovascular risk by mitigating stress. If you don't know what to do then start with 10 minutes of writing what you are grateful for each day or a few times per week.
Move your lymph: Dry Skin Brushing is a great way to move lymph. Lightly brush your skin from your feet and hands to your heart before bed. Castor Oil packs nightly can decrease inflammation and thin the lymph to increase movement.
Increase Vitality: End your showers with a cool 30-second spray. Or do one of my recommended Hydrotherapy Treatments
